Dear Siloko,

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We need some more information from you before we can start working on this bug.

Please include the information requested from the "Reporting Sound Bugs" section of https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingSoundProblems as separate attachments.

If you are using Jaunty or later this information can be gathered for you automatically using the command apport-collect -p alsa-base BUGNUMBER where BUGNUMBER is the number of the bug you've reported.

Additionally, I have done some research on your laptop model and linux/ubuntu sound compatibility and it appears that sound should be working without any special customizations. Perhaps, this is a regression.

Sincerely,

Darran

Hi,

If you mean adding:

options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1

to alsa-base.conf

I just tried that and it didn't work. Incidentally alsa-base.conf was empty until I added that line.

Cheers

siloko (siloko1) wrote :

Ignore the last comment - it did exists . . . I added:

options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1

rebooted, but no luck.

Cheers

Here is something else you can try. Open /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf in an editor as root. On the line you previously created for snd-hda-intel, remove the enable_msi=1 option, and adjust the line as per below:

options snd-hda-intel model=dell_desktop

Save the file, and reboot. Please report back as to whether this helps.

Hi,

That has fixed it, thanks very much. Incidentally I also commented out the previous line which seemed contradictory therefore the last two lines of my alsa-base.conf now read:

#options snd-hda-intel model=ref
options snd-hda-intel model=dell_desktop

I am not sure what the 'ref' option does and maybe it would be harmless but as of now I have sound for the first time since my 10.04 upgrade some several months ago. Thanks again to those who took the time to comment.

Actually, this is not exactly fixed yet, as this manual additiol will always be needed, unless a driver code update is made. That code change is what I am about to do, so this won't actually be fixed until a new Ubuntu kernel is released with the proper fix included.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed' to 'verification-done'.

If verification is not done by one week from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

Hi Siloko -- Please see Comment #25 in this bug, and let us know if the -proposed kernel does indeed fix the problem for you.

The fix for this patch came in via an upstream stable patch set. Therefore I'm marking this verification-done.
